Edith Wait

Edie has dabbled in many arts and crafts while raising her son and going to college. She was also a member of the North Dakota Army National Guard for more than 21 years. Her career in the North Dakota Army National Guard ranged from part-time soldier to a full-time position at the Pentagon. One day she decided she wanted to make a quilt for her son for Christmas and discovered her true passion. She wanted to finish her own quilts and purchased her first Handi Quilter machine in 2012, the HQ Sixteen®. She started her home business, CountryPolitan Quilting that same year and has not looked back. Many free motion quilts later, she discovered Pro-Stitcher® and knew she just had to have it. Edie enjoys discovering the capabilities of a new software. In 2019 she upgraded to an HQ Avanté® with Pro-Stitcher, and in 2022 to an HQ Amara® with Pro-Stitcher. Today she uses free motion, rulers, Pro-Stitcher, and Pro-Stitcher Designer when she creates everything from an edge-to-edge design to custom designs for her customers. She loves
the freedom to create that Pro-Stitcher and Pro-Stitcher Designer have brought to her successful business.

Edie loves passing on her passion and knowledge about all aspects of quilting to her students. She teaches classes at two different shops in North Dakota. Her curriculum ranges from piecing to longarm quilting for both beginner and advanced quilters. She is also versatile with her teaching platforms. She can teach private, individual classes, Zoom classes, and group/event classes. Her quilting profile includes projects ranging from designing an original piecing pattern to customized digital quilting designs. She is the mother of one son and grandmother to one granddaughter and lives in North Dakota.
